don't mean to rain on your parade, but silly covers like this are one more reason i don't think phish is as good as The Dead. Think about the craft, emotion, and originality that GD puts into songs like Morning Dew, I Know You Rider and Goin' Down the Road...and then there's Phish with their ridiculous clover of Tubthumping and Will Smith's Gettin Jiggy With it from the Hampton Comes Alive CD...ugh. i realize it's a different approach to the music and the nature of the band is sillier and gimmicky, but i just think its dumb.

Phish has done some fine, fine covers though (who doesn't like Loving Cup or funky Bitch after all) and i aware that we could all do with a few less Me and My Uncles....

i'm totally with you on A Live One, i think its some of the best music they've ever done. those versions of YEM and Chalkdust are the ones that always ring in my head!
